Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor also said that India blamed Pakistan for the Pulwama attack "without due investigation" and New Delhi has not yet accepted the "reality of partition".
Bajwa said that a "hybrid war" had been imposed on Pakistan to internally weaken it. "Our enemies know, that they cannot beat us fair and square and have thus subjected us to a cruel, evil and protracted hybrid war," he said, without taking any names.
Bajwa's statement comes days after former Pakistan President and military dictator Pervez Musharraf called LeT and JuD 'patriotic'and expressed his willingness to forge an alliance with them for the “safety and security” of Pakistan.
The meeting between Zakhilwal and Bajwa came a day after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in his UN General Assembly address sought dialogue with Pakistan to build strained ties and address raging militancy.
General Bajwa said Chinese investment in various fields, including energy, infrastructure, Gawadar port and special economic zones could lay the foundation of a fast developing, progressive Pakistan, if the opportunity is optimally utilized.
